Christina Aguilera was herself — wild and sexy — as she tore the stage as the headliner at a grand opening event for Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas.
The 40-year-old singer and actress wore a figure-hugging outfit — all in black — which included a latex top and headscarf, jeans, and heels for her performance in the entertainment capital.
The “Beautiful” singer accessorized with three large belts around her waist, all of them with large silver studs attached.
Christina Aguilera showed off black nails in keeping with her dark and dramatic look and used a dark eyeshadow palette to add the finishing touches to her outfit.
After her performance, the talented diva took to Instagram to thank her fans and to celebrate her big return to the stage.
She wrote: “Thanks for getting rowdy with me last night, Vegas 🖤 It’s so crazy to think the last show I did in front of a live audience was in Vegas over a year ago in March 2020, right before I got back to LA and everything shut down.”
She added: “Last night was an incredible full circle moment — reuniting with my fam on stage and being able to get back to what I love & was born to do…now recharged, reinspired and focused. It was wonderful to see everyone’s beautiful faces in the crowd, feeling the love and joy that can only be communicated through live music & connection through song! It’s a special feeling and I can’t wait to share more music and fun in the future!! Back at it!!✨💫”
Virgin Hotels has completed their last venue in Las Vegas, on the site of the former Hard Rock Hotel, which prompted the weekend-long party that began on Thursday with the grand opening event.
The latest hotel includes a beach club, a huge outdoor space for events, a variety of restaurants and bars, and a live music venue large enough to seat up to 4,500 people.
Earlier in the day, Christina Aguilera delighted fans by sharing three photos to her Instagram account, where she posed dramatically while standing inside an elevator.
Wearing a long-sleeved blue shirt, sweat pants, and Nike sneakers, she kept her look casual while also adding some drama with sunglasses and silver jewelry.
She captioned the post telling followers it was “about time for [her] arrival,” signing off with a note that read “see you tonight, Vegas.”
Earlier this month, to mark LGBTQ+ Pride Month, Christina promoted her own line of sweatshirts, which includes a giant graphic of her face.
In photos shared to her Instagram, as well as her website, she modeled the limited-edition clothing while sitting next to a mannequin and wearing a pair of black heels.
She also made fans go wild by removing her top to show off a pair of panties that featured a rainbow in the front.
